Metelica


Metelica (blizzard) is a club in the center part of Vilnius where it is snowing all year long :)
It is famous as the best Russian-speaking club in city.
I would add that the payment system is also quite interesting. At the entrance you get kind a credit card with limit of 200 LTL (~60 EUR), and you cover all purchases with cash just once when you are leaving.

Panorama


Today is 6 months since I came to work and live in Vilnius, the capital city of Lithuania, the neighbor of home country - Latvia.
Before I had another blog devoted to Riga, but since I spend more time in Vilnius than in Riga, I decided to start to start another blog. Maybe in future I will merge them under one name.
The first picture is Vilnius panorama taken on board of plane flying over Vilnius central part.
